The Digital Humanities Working Group at Queen’s are pleased to invite you to an ‘Introduction to Text Encoding using the TEI’
It will take place at Queen’s University Belfast on Friday 15 May from 10:00 to 17:00 in the new Graduate School Training Room 7.
This workshop will offer a condensed introduction to scholarly text encoding within a humanities or digital humanities context. It is designed to serve students in the humanities who are interested in using text encoding as a scholarly tool. Through a combination of discussion and practical experimentation, this workshop offers participants an opportunity to examine the significance of text encoding as a scholarly practice.
This workshop will commence by providing an introduction to text encoding for beginners. Participants will learn about the markup of text using XML (Extensible Markup Language). Essential concepts of text encoding will be explored and connected with important issues of disciplinary methods and digital representation. Particular attention will be paid to the markup of text using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines, an elaborate complex language for representing digital scholarship, and the de facto standard for rigor in digital texts. More information about the TEI can be found on the TEI Consortium Website.
